The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Portfolio will fluctuate, so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. See above “Average Annual Total Returns %” for performance information current to the most recent month-end. Returns for the other share classes will vary due to different charges and expenses. Performance assumes reinvestment of distributions and does not account for taxes.

Total investment return at net asset value has been calculated assuming a purchase at net asset value at the beginning of the period and a sale at net asset value at the end of the period; and assumes reinvestment of dividends, capital gain distributions and return of capital distributions/allocations, if any, in accordance with the provisions of the dividend reinvestment plan. Net asset value equals total Fund assets net of Fund expenses such as operating costs and management fees. Total investment return at net asset value is not annualized for periods less than one year.


Benchmark Disclosures

Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index

The Barclays Global Aggregate Index is an unmanaged index that provides a broad-based measure of the global investment-grade fixed-rate debt markets. The Index does not reflect fees, brokerage commissions, taxes, or other expenses of investing. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Emerging Market securities may be especially volatile. The Portfolio may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Portfolio performance. The Portfolio is subject to both Credit and Interest Rate Risk. The Portfolio’s share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements, with bond prices generally moving in the opposite direction from interest rates. Credit Risk refers to the bond issuers and senior loan issuers ability to make timely payments of principal and interest. High-Yield Securities, or “junk bonds”, are rated lower than investment-grade bonds because there is a greater possibility that the issuer may be unable to make interest and principal payments on those securities. To the extent that the Portfolio invests in Mortgage-Related Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. Other risks of the Portfolio include but are not limited to: Borrowing/Leverage Risks; Debt Securities Risk; Non-Diversification Risks; Other Investment Companies Risks; Price Volatility Risks; Inability to Sell Securities Risks; Securities Lending Risks; and Portfolio Turnover Risks. Investors should consult the Portfolio’s Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Portfolio’s risks.
